#rsrh How DID British security get compromised, anyway?

And how did the aforementioned Goofball get a pie through?  At Parliament?

No, seriously.  The British Parliament has been bombed in living memory; London itself gets targeted by terrorist attacks at a level that Americans in particular may not really recognize.  I know that the last time I visited England I was surprised for a while at the lack of public garbage cans… until I thought about it for a minute, and realized whyIt was so the IRA couldn’t put bombs in them.

There’s going to be firings over this.  And if somebody helped the Goofball, he or she might end up in jail.
